The Bobbins... they do Nothing! or do they?

3. September 2009 07:30 by Jobo | 2 Comments

I finally bit the bullet... and decided that expensive or no, I was going to finally order a Jumbo Kit for my Ashford Traveller.  I had been putting it off for quite a while telling myself that they were *only* bigger bobbins... that they wouldn't really *do* anything for my spinning.   And then, while plying the other night and worrying that I would overflow my current regular bobbins and have to splice an otherwise lovely skein of yarn, it hit me.  Oh-Jobo-just-order-the-darn-thing-and-get-it-over-with-already-you-weiner.

So here we are.  Brenda Gilmour (at Gaspereau Valley Fibers) was nice enough to help me figure out what I needed and then order it in especially for me!  I found her site/store while surfing one day looking for Ashford Suppliers.  She is fantastic to deal with by email and over the phone... and their website has all sorts of yarn and fiber goodies!  Stroll on over and check it out if you dare :)

The box came yesterday when I wasn't feeling very well... so I did unpack it, and touch every piece, and set it up on the wheel, but I didn't take any pictures yet... I plan on doing that tomorrow since I have a 4 day weekend (woooohooo!)

My husband got me the jumbo set for my Ashford Kiwi last Christmas and I have been sooooo happy with it, I will never go back to the standard.  Enjoy!  You are going to love it!
